The Wine

Harvested in early September 2016, the fruit was allowed to fully ripen to create our style of a Napa Valley interpretation of a Bordeaux style Sauvignon Blanc that is crisp yet full bodied with mouth coating deliciousness and made to age. The vintage had the perfect number of heat days with dry warm harvest weather, which leads to stellar wines. Pure stainless steel fermentation of Sauvignon Blanc preserves clean, crisp finish notes enhanced by the lightly French oak barrel aged Sémillon to offer depth and body.

Tasting Notes

Luscious stone fruits blend with racy citrus aromatics and flavors.

Vineyards

The Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon grapes were grown in Pope Valley at an elevation 715 feet on the Whisky River Ranch using sustainable farming practices. Hot daytime temperatures ripen the fruit to perfection and cool 55 degree nights maintain beautiful acidity.

Food Pairing

Sip as an aperitif. Pair with goat and sheep cheeses, shellfish, citrus based vinaigrettes and a decadent 50% milk chocolate treat.

Oak Program

Stainless steel fermented, sur lees for 24 months .
